We are happy to announce that on the sixth anniversary of Nature India in February 2014, Nature Publishing Group plans to bring to you the first ever ‘Nature India Anniversary Special’ print issue. The special issue will be a compendium of science coverage in India as seen through the eyes of Nature India over the last six years.
A must-have issue for anyone interested in India’s science, R&D scene and the latest career and industry trends, the compendium will have handpicked science news and features, research highlights, commentaries, policy features, career articles and interviews with some leading lights of Indian science. A team of NPG editors and eminent Indian scientists will dig into the rich archives of Nature India – the only stand-alone platform providing serious coverage of science in India – to bring you the special issue.
In keeping with Nature India’s multi-disciplinary coverage, the anniversary special issue will cover most streams of science. The 100-page issue will chronicle the growth of Indian science. We plan to have successive annual issues making these compendia not just a showcase of the best in Indian science in the years gone by but also a historical account of science as it is happening in India, year on year. The anniversary special thus intends to be an annual feature in the country’s science calendar upholding Nature India’s mandate to provide its readers the best coverage of Indian science.
The first issue is scheduled for launch in March, 2014 and will be distributed widely across India to all the Nature subscribers and interested research institutes, libraries and R & D labs. Additional copies will be distributed at various science events, trade shows, academic institutions, national and international seminars. (Get your copy.)
